Animation quality seems to have drooped a bit in this one, but they definitely made up for it in directing. That last scene where Thorfinn and the old woman both disappear into the crowd in different ways, and the final shot of the comb.

Also, someone please give Shizuka Ishigami an award for young Thorfinn. I'm guessing that Yuuto Uemura is taking over the role now, is that right? If it is, he's got some pretty big shoes to fill

This has to be the best episode from the series so far. Even though we only had less than 10 minutes of interaction of Thorfinn and the old lady, it was heartbreaking in the end when she cried. I hope Thorfinn will carry that image to his grave.

Also, did she break the comb? Or was it stepped on?
Persona 4 (Golden obviously) is better than Persona 5 imo

Years. He's pretty much train every moment he's awake and has the chance, if not in actual battle. Also heavily implied to inherit inhuman strength/skill from his father.

I hope the anime will dwell into the inhuman power of the bloodline then.

Yeah, people in twitter really hyping it up and even hailed it as their "aoty that not even aot can top it." (It's their opinion but still) Crazy how a damn good animation blinds viewers.


I'm only on episode 11 of Kimetsu rn, and it has to be one of the worst anime I've seen in a while. Aside from the pretty art and animation, everything else is done so poorly, I don't understand how people praise the show so much.
The story of demon slayer is average at best. It's the sakuga fest from ufotable that makes it a decent series.Some people lost their mind after last episode. That's why they are hyping it. Don't expect too much from it. But it is worth watching at least for episode 19.

talking about the monogatari series just what the hell made it so popular??? I tried watching it but it's just so confusing as if they're making it abstract just for the sake of confusing people into thinking "omg this is so confusing which must means this is something deep and meaningful that's beyond my understanding!"

thats basically it lol. the style is pretty unique but its only the style. its not really deep whatsoever. its just presented in a different way compared to other series and I don't understand why people think its good. The fan service just makes it worse too. especially some of the weird scenes in the series
Only bakemonagatari was watchable for me. Dropped it after next season because of that weird toothbrush scene.

A great episode. Lots of fighting and bodies dropping everywhere. Such a hard life for Thorfinn on the battlefield. Great to see him improving his fighting skills. You can tell he doesn't really want to do this but has no choice. Can't wait to see how he is further developed as a character.

Thorfin is broken as both a human being and as a believable character.

Bullshit he kills all those dudes that easy.

It's because of its fun cast who has some of the best character chemistry in anime in general lol (at least to most people that is). Same reason why Bunny Girl Senpai is also quite popular albeit only the 1st 2 arcs had great chemistry imo
oh ok so people love it for the characters not for the actual plot/story right?? I had high hopes for this show thinking it must have a really unique story to have so many fans fall in love with it despite its confusing abstractness. I guess they just love the cute girls and their harem relationship with araragi.


no more people love it for both the actual plot and the characters which is why the series has been around since 2006

Lol Askeladd drives the story in Prologue not Thorfinn. Keep chatting crap you will realise how jumping to conclusions makes you look like a clown later.

"Keep chatting crap". Thorfinn became number 1 elite soldier in what? Months? But time is not the point. You don't get good at PvP if you don't train in PvP. Fighting a tree with a knife is not PvP training. Can you call directly killing people from 0 training? Not really, the point in training is that you try doing something, you fail, you improve. Going directly to war doesn't give you the chance to fail and then improve, because when you fail you die.


How is Thorfinn an elite fighter? Because he took out random fodder characters? He gets fucked up and his arms broken later on when up against badass vikings but you are not patient enough to see that unfold and instead focus on fodder background characters there just to show how Thorfinn is growing instead of power scaling Thorfinn like a shonen anime. You see in the first scene how Askeladd protected Thorfinn from being killed which implies he is alive partly due to sticking wit Askeladd's band he isnt alone out there.

I like the series, it's very engaging but for me character development has taken me out of the Viking age.

We had the cute granny talking like a Japanese grandmother would and Thorfinn starts to remind me like characters in Attack on Titan (from scared to determined like Armin). And the Vikings were challenging the archers like ronin would do. They're acting anime Japanese while being in Europe, it just took me out of the immersion.

I've read a lot about the accuracy of Vinland Sagas but emotions and character portrayals are left to our imagination of course. It's drawn from past experience in anime making.

I guess I'm one of the few, the show's hugely popular in the end. I'll just have to adjust my point of reference.


How is it Japanese? Granny mentioning Jesus and how it's not ok to leave children unattended is a Japanese thing? What exactly about her was Japanese?

Yes man being scared and determined is an attack on titan and armin thing. Like you dont see it in fiction whatsoever.

LOL at the archers comment.

I hope I'm not meant to root for Thorfinn or the other vikings, or feel some kind of excitement from the action taking place involving them. Because I don't. At all.

The only character that deserves that in this show so far is Thors. But unfortunately he's dead already.

i have the impression we are not supposed to care or root or sympathise with his action but with is circumstances what lead to him to be in the situation he is in and we are just supposed witness how his life unfolds.

not sure what the difference is this series is seinen not shonen. from the comments i have seen

Thors killed and pillaged just like Askeladd and his men in the past before changing to the way he was. In due time you will see great character development.

There was a timeskip used in this episode and bit by bit, we are seeing how much stronger Thorfinn has become as a viking. His successful killing of the English soldiers certainly felt powerful and moving when he screamed into the sky in pure emotion.

Speaking of emotion, the second half of the episode was really good. The kind old lady and her daughter took in Thorfinn after finding him unconscious on a log over the river in the East Anglia region of England and despite the language barrier, she was kind enough to give him food, water and also combed his hair to get rid of the fleas.

However, Thorfinn still had a job to do and he did what he had to do, but he still wanted the villagers to run away to safety. Sadly, when the villagers crowded over Thorfinn as he killed the English soldiers in his way, the old lady saw what happened and burst into tears. I won't deny, that moment hit me hard, leaving me with goosebumps for the rest of the scene when the Vikings landed and killed any villagers that didn't escape.

What a way to end a great episode as well. Very sombre and heartbreaking, but I still want to see more of Thorfinn's character development and progression as he gets older and more skillful with fighting. =)

Holy shit, there is a lot of misinformation in the comments.
'Highly developed nations' or 'professional soldiers' are things that only someone with no idea of the time this plays in can say.
Maybe if you want to criticize the historical accuracy do at least some leg work before making a fool out of yourself.
The English soldiers are most likely farmers that got put in a uniform, because nobody could pay a big standing army. That is also why Askelad and his band are so effective. They basically rob and plunder for a living and, thanks to that, are very experienced fighters with excellent gear. Given a scenario like a surprise attack they could wipe out triple their numbers without much of a problem and Thorfin now is basically a child trained to fight with a weapon that is uncommon for someone to use (remember he picked the dagger because the sword was to heavy for him).
The highly developed nations are also a joke, because even if a lot of villages and areas gather under one banner the distance alone makes sure that every village is basically on his own. Even someone like the Danish king needs years to gather his army, sending envoys to villages (that is why they found and wanted Thors).
Is the show 100% accurate? No, this is not history channel, but apart from some characters being portrait as superhuman it comes pretty close in terms of politics fights etc. Even the artistic license they take for some of the characters is rooted in historical writings. Imagine that even people of the time preferred to make the stories more colorful than they were. (sometimes to make them look better or the enemy worse etc.)

Can someone tell me that the mother is alive?

The old lady has a chance to survive, because she is no danger and not an interesting target for rape or murder (unless they want to make sure everyone dies, but this attack doesn't seem planned that way). The daughter on the other hand ... she only has a chance if she ran the moment Thorfin told them to run and they made sure to not show her again to give us at least the hope. Pretty sure the manga was a bit more explicit (not sure though I read it a long time ago and there are tons of similar raids) and with Askelad making claims about the women you can use your imagination what happens if she got caught.

I was afraid Thorfinn’s first kill would be evil but it was self defense/ war situation the only sad part is that he is only 6 year old at the time -_-

For all the people bitching about how he shouldn't be able to kill people, I have to question if we've been watching the same show. His dad was extremely OP and it only makes sense that as his son he'd be at least half as strong. Even if we factor in his age and inexperience, he still has trained and fought vigorously with people who kill, loot, and steal for a living.


This. Are you guys fucking dumb or something ? Why do you complain about a kid killing grown men when two episodes ago we had some dude knocking out 50 armed men with a single punch and throwing a guy twice his size into the air ?

What I love is that the anime showed ruthless side of war and piracy (here: vikinghood) from the point of teenager's view who had to grow up in that kind of circumstances. Thorfinn had to forget his feelings he had as a child when he lost his father and slowly, but fast enough, turn into relentless killer. We saw him losing his former life's humanity. The turning point was seeing that old woman disappearing and vikings rushing into her village. That's how Thorfinn's old emotions faded away, just like this old woman.

This episode really made the opening make sense. The opening seemed a bit off for a viking anime but the anger and rage Thorfinn has really lines up with the opening.

Very awesome episode. He's become everything his father didn't want him to. The way he stabs people in the head and back of the neck is badass.

I have a feeling he'll be doing a lot more things that will make him hate himself in the future.

"However, in spite of this, by the 10th century, the Saxon kingdom of England was, perhaps, the best ordered state in Europe with a highly efficient administration that had a solid currency and could raise taxes to support a military establishment."
Source:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Saxon_military_organization

What is now England had been harassed by vikings for hundreds of years at that point, hence they had a complex garrison system in place to response to raids quickly. This included mandatory military service, a rotation system, expeditionary forces, expected equipment according to rank etc. Not that it matters here since this is obviously fiction. Just do some "leg work" yourself before you go after people and making up a whole paragraph. If anyone is really interested in the historical context and the warfare at the time I highly recommend "Saxon, Viking and Norman" out of Osprey Publishing's Men at Arms series

The funny thing is nothing you said contradicted his post.

First off, having the "best" is relative. There is no way that a small platoon of troops would be able to fight off a group of hundred skilled plunderers and raiders during a surprise attack in defense of a village. And by the time the military would mobilize and deploy when they head to the village all they would find are ashes and bodies.

That's why Askelaidd and his men are so dangerous and why they are sought after by the Danes in particular. To inflict as much damage as they could to England in preparation for the mass invasion to come through guerrilla tactics.

Going to wikipedia and quoting a selection without any thought of context or critical thinking makes you look woefully unequipped for a discussion on the topic.

Local villages had, as shown in the show, a small group of guards to defend against local bandits and equipment for the local men and farmers to fight. We used to call them Minute Men during the Revolutionary War, a concept taken from the Europeans. Farmers during this time would be armed and to sent to battle alongside actual military combatants.

During the early 11th century where this story takes place England's "complex garrison system" was being outmaneuvered by several raids orchestrated by King Sweyn Forkbeard (which was said in episode 2 if anyone actually paid attention). Askeladd's success and gurella tactics against outnumbered farmers and minutemen and woefully unprepared Englishmen makes perfect sense, as does Thofinn's ability to capitalize on the confusion to get a kill or two.

You might as well drop this. He's only going to become a better fighter from this point onward, and it's obvious that your fixation on realism is hindering your enjoyment of the show.


No, my enjoyment is mainly hindered by the lack of any excitement whatsoever. Besides for Thors vs Askeladd, which I really enjoyed, I've been struggling to stay awake throughout this show. The lack of realism was just a small point that I brought up in my first post due to it slightly annoying me, but now that about 28 people have quoted me on it, I'm actually starting to care about it.
no what he is saying in his first statement is that the people in this world dont posses the same limitations that our world posses , so the abilities of thorfin are consistent with his background and in world logic. is is realistic ? no but plenty of great stories stretch realism and they are fine as long as the internal logic is consistent.

Lack of excitement ? Plenty of drama and characterization happened in the last 4 episodes what have you been watching?

I guess ill add to those people.

In this episode it is said that the previous King had signed a peace, after his death the current king began the war by killing the Danish immigrants in England, so it is plausible that the armies are full of peasants, the husband of the village family in fact was called in war

that toothbrush is honestly genius and is a great examination into ubsurd festishes and also the humor of them.

I don’t know how either of those count as “excitement”; what I do know is that I unironically fell asleep while watching episode 5
I guess we have different preferences for excitement , I like substance and great writing more than action.

Yeah, I definitely agree. If only Vinland had either of those.

you fell asleep, so you probably missed all of it.

The old lady was heartbroken when she saw what Thorfinn was. She knew the kid has been through some serious stuff if he's turned out like that already.


Dude, that was the saddest part of that episode. She covered up for him despite knowing he's part of the enemy, because she was hoping he's someone who could escape the fate of going down the bloody path. Unfortunately he already has ventured down that road, and she had to see that right before her, hence standing there in shock and without words.

That hurt for me on a personal level cause I saw that part in the manga. I personally felt like the adaptation did that scene pretty damn well, except for the whole language barrier thing :P


That scene was heart-wrenching, my god...

I agree on the language barrier thing although I think stuff like that is hard to with subs and the subs did a decent job all things considered. No idea how well they voiced it because I don't speak Japanese.

Well Thorfinn grew up a bit and that story from the last was sad.

There’s no fantasy or magic bullshit or any of those cheesy ass cardboard characters. Of course you probably won’t like it xD
